Collective Action And Market Formation: An Integrative Framework, Brandon Lee, Jeroen Struben, Christopher B. Bingham 2018 McGill University

Collective Action And Market Formation: An Integrative Framework, Brandon Lee, Jeroen Struben, Christopher B. Bingham

Brandon Lee


While extant research places collective action at the heart of market formation, it provides little understanding about when and to what extent collective action is important. In this paper, we develop a novel theoretical framework detailing what collective action problems and solutions arise in market formation and under what conditions. Our framework centers on the development of market infrastructure with three key factors that influence the nature and extent of collective action problems: perceived returns to contributions, excludability, and contribution substitutability. We apply our framework to diverse market formation contexts and derive a fresh set of attendant propositions. Finally, we ...


The Minute Business Challenge: Connecting Undergraduates And The Community Through Critical Thinking, Shannon Kane 2017 Purdue University

The Minute Business Challenge: Connecting Undergraduates And The Community Through Critical Thinking, Shannon Kane

Purdue Journal of Service-Learning and International Engagement

In spring 2015, Melissa Evens, Director of the Undergraduate Communication Studio at Krannert, asked Shannon Kane to design an activity to be showcased at Purdue’s Annual Spring Fest. Having been given quite a bit of creative freedom, she hoped to develop an event that would not only create awareness of management careers among the local youth, but also encourage Krannert undergraduate students to become more involved in the local community. With these goals in mind, she developed the Minute Business Challenge (MBC), an activity that presents community members of all ages with real-world business problems and gives them the ...

Imsa360: 2017 Annual Report, Imsa Fund

IMSA Fund Reports

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! It’s a special academic year in that we begin the school year with a full budget! Over the past three years, our colleagues in public schools (K-12), who are under the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE), began their school year with a full budget while IMSA and the rest of the universities, which are under the Illinois Board of Higher Education (IBHE), began and operated most of the past two years without a full budget.

Workarounds In Nonprofit Management: Counter Theory For Best Practices Innovation, Stuart C. Mendel 2017 Nonprofit Academic Centers Council

Workarounds In Nonprofit Management: Counter Theory For Best Practices Innovation, Stuart C. Mendel

Journal of Ideology

One quiet aspect of the exercise of best practices in nonprofit operations settings is that managers typically must engage in creative problem solving to accommodate exceptions or unanticipated conditions. Problem solving may be perceived as situational until the frequency of the “workarounds” give pause to decision-makers, leading some to challenge the validity of the best practice. This essay uses inductive method inquiry drawing upon existing nonprofit management literature on best practices, workarounds and related topics. The essay posits that workarounds are an underappreciated component of nonprofit management theory.

Strategic Management In Irish Construction Professional Service Firms: A Comparative Study Across Professions., Oluwasegun Seriki, Roisin Murphy 2017 Dublin Institute of Technology

Strategic Management In Irish Construction Professional Service Firms: A Comparative Study Across Professions., Oluwasegun Seriki, Roisin Murphy

Conference papers

The Irish construction industry has undergone substantial change in the past decade. Following a deep, lengthy recession the improving outlook of the construction sector makes the inquiry into strategy within the firms both timely and appropriate. Determining how construction organizations successfully adapt in a highly turbulent industry is critical to ensure survival in a highly cyclical industry sector. Strategizing in construction professional service firms (CPSFs) is not well documented, and there is little understanding of the strategy processes, and implications of these processes in the firms. As part of an ongoing study, the strategic management process in CPSFs is reviewed ...


Development Of The Referee Retention Scale, Lynn L. Ridinger, Kyungun R. Kim, Stacy Warner, Jacob K. Tingle 2017 Trinity University

Development Of The Referee Retention Scale, Lynn L. Ridinger, Kyungun R. Kim, Stacy Warner, Jacob K. Tingle

School of Business Faculty Research

Building upon the current sport officiating research, this study puts forth the Referee Retention Scale (RRS). Through a three-phase process, the researchers developed a valid and reliable scale to predict sport officials’ job satisfaction and intention to continue. The first phase consisted of instrument development, while the second phase included field testing of referees (n=253). After EFA and Rasch analysis, the resultant refined scale from phase 1 and 2 was then administered to 979 referees in phase 3. Phase 3 results using CFA indicated that the 7-factor, 28-item RRS was a valid and reliable tool for measuring and predicting ...


A Systems-Based Framework For Design And Analysis Of An R And D Structure, Polinpapilinho F. Katina, Charles B. Keating, Luna M. Magpili 2017 Old Dominion University

A Systems-Based Framework For Design And Analysis Of An R And D Structure, Polinpapilinho F. Katina, Charles B. Keating, Luna M. Magpili

Engineering Management & Systems Engineering Faculty Publications

A critical challenge for managerial effectiveness and competitive advantage in research and development (R and D) organizations is developing an appropriate structural configuration. However, in finding an appropriate structural configuration, R and D managers are faced with unprecedented levels of uncertainty, ambiguity, and accelerating complexity, coupled with demands for increased productivity. This paper develops a systems-based framework to support rigorous design, analysis, and transformation of the structure for R and D organizations. The framework development includes: (1) a review of the literature for the nature and role of the structure in R and D management; (2) setting of the R ...

Networking During Strategic Change In Small Organizations, Louis Grabowski, Lars Mathiassen 2017 Georgia State University

Networking During Strategic Change In Small Organizations, Louis Grabowski, Lars Mathiassen

Engaged Management ReView

Managers recognize change as their number one challenge with the vast majority of their initiatives ending in failure. Managers of small organizations are particularly challenged because these organizations have limited resources and they are particularly vulnerable to environmental dynamics. Against this backdrop, we conducted a qualitative, longitudinal study into a small organization that struggled with strategic change over a seven-year period. We draw on concepts from Actor Network Theory to reveal the importance of effective, conscious, and proactive networking with internal stakeholders and with the powerful, external players upon which small organizations depend. This perspective also emphasizes that managers must ...


Mergers: What Ethical Leaders Can Do To Help Ensure Success, Barbie Pike 2017 Kennesaw State University

Mergers: What Ethical Leaders Can Do To Help Ensure Success, Barbie Pike

The Siegel Institute Journal of Applied Ethics

Abstract

This paper looks at several research articles which include discussions on the success and failures of mergers. Mergers continue to rise in number even though there is a lack of evidence showing positive results. Though failure rates for mergers are high, there is a large amount of research showing what organizations and more specifically leaders can do to ensure the success of mergers. This paper examines things that ethical leaders can do to positively impact the introduction, transition, and outcome of mergers when considering culture, the size of the organization, diversity, conflict, change, role modeling, team building, communication, planning ...
